  1. It wasn't open last Tuesday. Not sure what it's like now. Very shallow in the channel before it iced over.
  2. I have a 20' Robalo center console and I troll with 2 bags and they work great. You can call Amish Outfitters and tell them what you have and they'll recommend the right size for you (1-800-473-1748). I tried a spring loaded trolling plate and it worked fine for a while. Then I was trying to control my boat when docking on a windy day and had to give it some gas in reverse. The plate got sucked in and damaged my prop and ripped a chunk out of my cavitation plate (and the trolling plate went to the bottom of the lake). That's when I decided it was bags or a kicker! Obviously, bags are much cheaper. I also agree with Justin, I had a pontoon set up for trolling for a lot of years and it was a great setup. I just wanted to try something different. I may go back to the pontoon at some point.
  3. Well, it was a nice warm day for the tournament, but the south winds were up and the fishing was tough. I'm sure that it might have been difficult to fish you're favorite spots, but several teams hung in there and did pretty well. In 1st place was Team Kevin Oliver with 4.27 lb and also the largest perch at 1.135 lbs. Second place went to the Brian Richardson team at 3.90 lbs, 3rd place was the Don Huberth team at 3.62 lbs, and 4th place went to the Jeremy McGregor team with 3.41 lbs. Thanks to all who participated and came to the weigh in for pizza, wings, and refreshments and the good old fishing stories. Always great to see the familiar faces and say hello after we missed the spring tourney. See you all in spring 2021!! Ted
  4. Website is up and running for entries. Click on 'Other' tab and then 'Perch Tournament'. Rules are there and option to sign up online. Long range weather forecast looks pretty good.
  5. We have decided that it's time to get out there and have some fun. The Seager Marine Fall Perch Tournament will be held on Canandaigua Lake this year on Saturday, October 10, 2020. Same price, same rules, same payouts and plaques, and same fun weigh-in! We'll just need to be careful and wear some masks at weigh-in and keep our social distance. I think you'll really be impressed by the new look of our pier location. Need to pre-register by 5:00PM on Friday, October 9th. Entry fee is $40 per team (1 - 3 persons), weigh-in 5 live perch for total weight. Fishing hours are 7:00am to 3:00pm, weigh-in at 3:30pm. We'll have reg forms and rules up on our website soon. Just wanted everyone to save the date.

    OK thanks. I'll probably head to Bristol Harbor and south.

    I assume you stayed down south? I was up north and it was very quiet (fishing wise!). I have a friend coming in from out of town to fish this week so I guess I better make the run south. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

    Thanks Dan. Good ole Sutton 88 huh? I would think that they would be spinning at that speed, but maybe currents have something to do with it. I plan to go out Saturday and see if I can find a few. Thanks for the comeback and info. Much appreciated.
  9. Very nice Les! I’ll be out Saturday. Hope to do as well. Just trying to figure out what to run. Riggers, leadcore, dipsy’s? Guess I’ll have to try all. Then where to go. So many decisions. Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

  13. Well - we really hoped we could pull this off, but with all that is going on these crazy days, we decided that it's best to cancel the Seager Marine Spring Perch tournament that was scheduled for 4/18/20. Hopefully things will get back close to normal and we'll be ready to rock and roll in the fall. Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy and catching lots of fish! Hope to see some of you 'social distancing' out on the water! Ted
  14. DON'T GIVE UP! We still plan to hold this perch tournament. We are trying to figure out a way to do it kind of virtually. The plan that we're discussing is to go by total length of 5 fish, instead of weight. I know this is not the norm for a perch tourney, but it keeps us all away from each other at a weigh in. We would all have to be on our best behavior and keep it honest. You would all send pictures of your fish on a bump board or ruler. Then we would mail out prizes/plaques. Unfortunately, we would lose the camaraderie and story-telling (not to mention the refreshments), but perhaps we could put something together for you guys to take out with you in the morning. This would require that all boats head out of the north launch at Canandaigua and we'd meet for a second prior to starting so we could hand out goodies/maybe rulers/cable ties. Still a work in progress, but we're trying to find a way to make it work so everyone can still get out there and have a little fun and competition. The lake is about the best place to be these days! Let me know if anyone has any ideas that might help this to run smoothly. Thanks, Ted
  15. Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow so spring will be here before you know it!! We're holding our annual Seager Marine spring perch tournament on Saturday, April 18, 2020. Same as last year - team of 1 to 3, $40 entry, and full payback. You can sign up right from our website if you'd like (www.seagermarine.com). This should be set up in the next few days. You can also stop in at 21 Parrish St anytime (Monday - Saturday). The pier building is undergoing renovations, but we'll still hold the weigh-in at that location. Hope to see you all again soon. Refreshments and lively chatter as always at the weigh-in!
